Tim and Judy Finn planted their first vines in 1978, alongside the tiny hamlet of Neudorf, established by German settlers in 1842. While the Finns initially earned an international reputation for their concentrated, minerally Chardonnay and taut, racy Riesling, it is their elegant and complex Pinot Noir which has attracted recent attention.

"The variety ripens well in the warm Nelson summers as it can in many areas. However the power of very ripe Chardonnay can too often result in broad wines with no great charm or finesse.
At Neudorf this rich fruit concentration is balanced by lovely retained mineral acidity resulting from a happy combination of clay gravel soil, Chardonnay clone (small berried Mendosa) and cool autumn nights.
With natural attributes of such power and bright mineral focus, it is for the winemaker to use his skills and imagination to gently craft a wine of texture, balance and complexity, a wine that has a unique sense of place."
